On the 21st of November Stuart Hunter, Jane McNicol, Alan Roughead, Rebecca Ellwood, Lauren Alexander-Smith, Blair MacDonald and Arlene Breen are swapping their beds for a sleeping bag to experience a “good night’s sleep” on the cold, hard pavement to help fundraise for local charity, CATH.
We are not attempting to match the sense of danger, hopelessness and hunger, which afflicts many homeless people, but we hope to raise general awareness of homelessness and help fund raise for local charity, CATH.
CATH (Churches Action for the Homeless) is a charity which supports, encourages and promotes the development and delivery of projects to relieve homelessness and poor housing, improve the conditions of life and generally aid the development of persons who are homeless in the Perth and Kinross area.
Please help us to raise money for the homeless and donate via JustGiving.
Most properties in Scotland are supplied by Scottish Water, however around 150,000 people in Scotland rely on a private water supply (any water supply not provided by Scottish Water) for their drinking water.

It is now illegal to use any form of asbestos in the construction or refurbishment of any buildings. However, asbestos was commonly used in construction in the past, and much of what was used is still in place.
If you are responsible for any non-residential premises, legally you have a duty to manage the risk from asbestos and must have a plan in place to deal with any asbestos.
